Subject: Hot Off the Presses: War Bonds
Newsreel clip from the early days of World War II showing the first War Bonds being printed and announced by government bigwigs. This has some great factory tour footage of rolling printing presses producing bonds and stamps. The part where the bigwigs talk is boring, but brief. A historically interesting snippet from the war years.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
